Collaborative Robots Workshop

Dates: April 16, 2014
Location: Boston, Massachusetts

Collaborative Robots, or robots that work side by side with humans, are the hottest topic in robotics right now.

To learn about the technology, applications, safety implications, and human impacts of this major advancement in the field, attend the Robotic Industries Association (RIA) Collaborative Robots Workshop on April 16, 2014 in Boston, Massachusetts.

This one day event brings together the leaders in the field including representatives from companies such as Rethink Robotics, Universal Robots, Yaskawa/Motoman, KUKA, and iRobot. You’ll also hear the perspectives of top researchers from MIT, NIST and Carnegie Mellon. And, you’ll get an overview from Henrik Christensen, PhD, of Georgia Tech, one of the world’s foremost robotics experts.

As a bonus, all attendees will receive free admission to The Vision Show, North America’s leading vision and imaging event. Vision is a key element of the future of collaborative robots.
